Fox Friday

Posted on May 1, 2015

While we have done Frog Fridays from time to time, I thought we could change it up a bit and do a Fox Friday post. While Scott’s got some cute Red Fox (Vulpes vulpes) kits growing up outside his place, I’ve got some little foxes growing up just down the street from where I live right near Chautauqua Lake. As the sunny days have been increasing and the temperatures have been on the rise, the activity of wildlife and this year’s growth of many plants have begun. During sunny, warm days these little kits have been coming out of their den to sit and sun themselves. They also have been going on short adventures, getting a bit of playtime in in order to develop their hunting skills. It’s incredible the amount of wildlife that is around, even in places that appear to be quite developed (such as around Chautauqua Lake). That’s why it’s important to always be on the lookout for different species where ever you may live!
